I had seen name of this restaurant here and there but had never tried it before. Caxton is not far from the city centre but on the other side of the CBD that requires transport - that was my excuse of not having been there before. This place is for seafood lovers who crave for sophisticated yet simple touch. Menus... More

I love the service from the family, they think of everything which goes with the high quality food in walking distance from the heart of the city. Go next door to their pub for a drink at the end of the evening

I visited Gambaro Seafood Restaurant with friends and it was absolutely lovely! The seafood was incredible quality. I have the linguine marinara and the combination of different seafood items was beautiful. The flavour was wonderful and it just tasted fresh! I thought the price was reasonable for the quality. My friends all loved the Barramundi! Well worth the treat for... More

Last Saturday night I was with a group of 10 people for dinner. I was led to believe that I would have a wonderful experience with awesome food and fine dining. This was not the case. The food was nice but certainly no wow factor. We booked for 7 pm and we're still having desert at 10 pm. The service... More

We took advantage of not having our kids to enjoy a beautiful dinner. Service and food were superb. We especially loved the garlic prawns that were cooked in front of us!

Gambaro is an institution and has been on Caxton for years but they have just redone the restaurant and have a great menu to match. The staff were attentive and we had great service from marjolan. Can't wait to go back

My wife and I visited here on Saturday night. The food was wonderful and the service great. The highlight of the night was when we were about to order desert George came to our table and offered to cook his special Suzie Crepes.

Booked a table of 10 at $125 a head for the State of Origin. The package was a set menu with hot seafood followed by cold seafood and a 2.5hour drink package.
